Accelerating 0-emission building sector ambitions in the MENA region

As of: August 2019

Objective and activities

Due to strong construction activities in the urban centres, the project focuses on dense urban regions where especially multi-family houses dominate. The technical focus is on an increased use of more efficient and / or on renewable energy-based heating and cooling systems. By supporting the implementation of pilot projects accompanied by a policy dialogue, the project’s main objective is to increase the energy performance standard in the building sector of the MENA (Middle East & North Africa) region. For this purpose, the project is structured into two main phases. In phase 1, based on a basic macro-economic analysis of the six considered countries (analysis of the most relevant economic and legal framework parameters such as energy prices, etc.), the three most promising countries for the implementation of project-specifications will be selected together with the BMU and will be later targeted in phase 2.
